Course summary

The Marine Technology Education Consortium courses offer innovative and flexible training for graduates working in the marine industry. You will develop advanced technical skills and business applications. The courses are part time and offer minimal disruption to your work responsibilities.

Delivered through a combination of distance learning materials and intensive schools, our course allows a flexible approach to study in a supportive environment. Our course material is highly relevant and practical for working in the marine industry. You will be encouraged to reflect on the industrial relevance of the modules in relation to your work.

The courses are operated by the Marine Technology Education Consortium (MTEC), a consortium of leading UK universities.

The availability of one general and three specialised pathways ensures that the course is tailored to suit your professional needs. The general MSc and Postgraduate Diploma is available for those seeking a broader-based study package.

Each pathway has compulsory modules, but the number will vary depending on the relevant stream and qualification. Each contain the following format:

  • Pre-school material - this requires 50 hours of study and enables you to revise and review essential material so that the intensive school can be run effectively. This material is made available six to eight weeks prior to the intensive school. You take a pre-school assignment (30% of the module mark) which is submitted on the first day of the intensive school.
  • A week-long intensive school - this will have a contact time of 35 hours and will include lectures, case studies, tutorials, presentations, discussions and visits. Academic and industrial tutors will be involved. You sit an examination (40% of the module mark) during this teaching week.
  • Post-school material - this requires 15 hours of study and involves completion of a post school assignment (30% of the module mark) submitted eight weeks after the intensive school. This consolidates your learning on the module.

Accreditation

Modules on the MSc and PGDip are accredited jointly by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council.

This gives you an additional benchmark of quality to your degree, making you more attractive to graduate employers. It can also open the door to higher-level jobs, most of which require Chartered Engineer status.

Students can also exit with Pgdip/PgCert awards.
